For the past eighteen years, Aging Solutions has been providing Client-Centered Care Management to elderly and disabled adults. Everything we do focuses on the best interests of the client, that is, the person needing assistance.
Aging Solutions provides well-executed Client-Centered Care Management with the goal of avoiding unnecessary hospitalizations and emergency department (ED) visits. Our client education assists the client in making better life decisions, in conjunction with their health care providers and support system, so that health care system utilization can be sharply reduced, while quality of life is enhanced.
We also maximize the integration of community services at the local level. This minimizes the need to use the already overburdened medical system as the default resource in a client’s life.
A Team Of Geriatric Care Professionals
Each Aging Solutions client benefits from the work of a team of care management professionals, including a clinical gerontologist and a registered nurse. A client’s care manager interacts directly with the client’s medical team to clarify care issues and troubleshoot in support of a doctor’s treatment plan. A non-clinical care coordinator is in charge of team activities and acts as a backup liaison for a medical team. A client’s physician still has ultimate authority over medical treatment in the Aging Solutions model; Aging Solutions never provides medical treatment or therapies, nor authorizes nor denies medical services.
In many instances, Aging Solutions acquires a new client during a crisis involving a significant change in a client’s physical health or mental capacity. Once the client is situated securely and stabilized, he or she will experience a significant improvement in quality of life under our coordinated care approach. Not only is our care management approach more beneficial, it is usually more cost-effective for the client, their family and the local health-care system.
